Youngest still-forming solar system found yet, about 300,000 years old. 450 light years away in the Taurus Cloud and is one of the closest examples of the earliest stages of star formation. Has one fifth the Sun's mass, but is believed to be able to grow to about the same mass as the Sun. Has enough material in its disk for seven Jupiters.
